I consider "My Wife's Relations" to be one of the best Buster Keaton short films, along with "The Goat", "The Paleface", "Scarecrow", "Frozen North". It's full of cool little gags, and while the final scene should have been a bit more thrilling and extensive, overall it is a quality film. I'd recommend this one and The Goat to everyone as an introduction to Buster.
